Return to Hello and TechCrunch’s venture capital-centric podcast equity, where we unpack the numbers behind the headlines.
Natasha And Mary Ann Together took over this week’s show Chris And Grace, Which means it’s about to be the most delusional time of the year, as well as the most delusional. Inadvertently, today’s episode revolved around the theme of inclusion થી from auto-insurance to women’s health, and from payments to knowledge.
But here are some more specifics of what we got:
- For our funding round section, we discussed UK marshmallows are getting unicorn status for it More inclusive, big data car insurance, women’s health tech brand Alvi takes its Series C to $ 97 million, and an ambitious fintech play from Leap, which seeks to give gig workers give access to financial products by directly participating in the market.
- After passing dollars and deals, I’ve come up with my latest piece: Adtech leans into the creator economy with group-based classes. The origin of the story lies in a ton of tension, the biggest of which I will ask you as a question: should anyone be allowed to be a teacher?
- We then went into the world of Mary Ann Fintech to understand what National BNPL Week looks like. If I could, I would argue that this whole show is a “can’t miss” segment, because we understand why it’s a global phenomenon, what markets are closing and what this means for the credit card industry. Below are the headlines we went through:
- And then we ended up talking about a beautiful, but potentially dangerous robot unicorn. Yes. You read that right.
Remember when we were all thinking about what the “new normal” would look like? Well, I think he’s here.
